After seven years of marriage, Jennifer Lopez and husband Marc Anthony are divorcing.
In a joint statement to People, the couple said the split was an “amicable conclusion.”
“We have decided to end our marriage,” the couple said. “This was a very difficult decision. We have come to an amicable conclusion on all matters.
“It is a painful time for all involved, and we appreciate the respect of our privacy at this time.”
Lopez, 41, and Anthony, 42, have been married since 2004, and have two children together — 3-year-old twins Max and Emme.
The couple’s marriage came quick in 2004, less than a week after Anthony’s divorce was finalized from former Miss Universe Dayanara Torres in 2004.
The pair married in a quiet home wedding at Lopez’s Beverly Hills home.
Before Anthony, J.Lo had several well-publicized relationships. In 2001, the singer’s marriage to back-up dancer Chris Judd ended after just nine months. Then, she moved on to rap mogul Diddy, and later, actor Ben Affleck.
